Ths SST has a high 0.485 G1 ballistic coefficient, which essentially means it excels at overcoming frontal air resistance so that it can fly flatter and conserve greater energy downrange. The SST’s low-drag secant ogive jacket profile, sharp polymer tip and angled boat tail all help it retain at least 1,000 ft lbs of whitetail-thumping energy until about 566 yards!
When a bullet’s core and jacket separate after impact, it loses the weight and momentum it needs to penetrate deeply. That is why the SST’s core and jacket are mechanically locked together in two places: the toothed mid-body cannelure, and the InterLock ring. The bullet remains mostly intact as its polymer tip drives devastating outward expansion – aka the terminal performance that knocks a buck’s block off.
Fiocchi loads this ammo’s Nebraska-made bullets in the great state of Missouri. Their virgin brass cases cycle smoothly and reload nicely, and their primers and powder charges are paired and heavily standardized to ensure consistent performance.
